Update: This article has been updated with specific match information.

Columbus will get its first taste of live sports since the pandemic closed down the country in March.

The Basketball Tournament, a 5-on-5 annual single-elimination competition, won’t be missing its chance at displaying high-stakes basketball this year. The 2019 Tournament champion Carmen’s Crew, a team consisting of Ohio State alumni, will get the opportunity to defend its title in its hometown. 

Although the tournament won’t consist of the usual 64-team format or have fans in attendance, TBT is still dedicated to bringing live sports to Nationwide Arena for all 23 tournament games. Games will also be broadcast live on the ESPN family of television networks.
